The monument comprises the unusually well-preserved and impressively complete remains of two stone-built circular huts, one of which is set within a well preserved and prominent octagonal enclosure. The site probably dates from the first millennium BC. The site displays diverse structural features and is particularly interesting because of the close association of the two huts and the presence of a visible field system around them.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement practices. It is an important relic of the prehistoric landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of environmental and structural evidence, including preserved internal and external floor levels.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
